Animal bindings

Are the HO Animal bindings made right and left foot specific or is this something that one can change?
I saw a pair for sale that said right foot forward. I was under the impression that this is something that could be changed.

I think they are foot specific. From looking at them, I think it's not just the footbeds that are different, but also how the overlays are arranged. I could be wrong about this last part though.

I think you'd be better off waiting for a pair that were LFF if that's what you're looking for.

03 and newer Animals are foot specific. 02 and older are not specific. I agree, find the correct setup. Jamie

you used to be able to adjust HO bindings for left or right foot forward. The difference is only which side the arch is on. With the old style, the arch was raised using an allen screw on either side. Result is you could flatten it on one side and raise it on the side you needed it.

The new ones are not switchable. The plus is that they are much more comfortable with a more secure fit.

Just a few months ago, I purchased the HO Phanton Truth with Animal bindings. I had the same trouble and thought that it would be o.k. I found that there is a difference in the arch/insole and the structure of the boot. I need to reorder the bindings for my LFF apprach. Since them, these are the best boots that I have ever used and relieve the worry about your foot coming out of the binding.

Bump to get input on my Animal binding tether (tightening string). My front boot is coming loose during my passes and it is disconcerting to say the least. 1 season old with this V-type ski and wonder if anybody has a solution besides putting a new string and plastic keep on? I thought about using a binder clip and see if that might work? Any other thoughts?
Thanks.

The lace snatch is usually the culprit. On a different note have you considered upgrading your boots. Unless your truly comfortable only in animals it's well worth a try with some v maxs or even the x maxs. They are the bindings that suit the v type. The only reason HO continues to sell the animal is for die hard rubber binding fans
